  1. A novel categorisation system to organise a large photo identification database for white sharks <em>Carcharodon carcharias</em>

    A novel categorisation system to organise a large photo identification database for white sharks <em>Carcharodon carcharias</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The white shark Carcharodon carcharias was one of the first elasmobranch species where photo identification was used to identify unique individuals. In this study, we propose guidelines that improve the current photo identification technique for white sharks by presenting a...
  2. Long current to nowhere? — Genetic connectivity of <em>Jasus tristani</em> populations in the southern Atlantic Ocean

    Long current to nowhere? — Genetic connectivity of <em>Jasus tristani</em> populations in the southern Atlantic Ocean

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The commercially exploited spiny lobster Jasus tristani has a disjunct distribution in the southern Atlantic Ocean, with populations occurring at the Tristan da Cunha Archipelago, Gough Island and on Vema Seamount. A distance of 2 000km separates Vema and the...
  3. Flea diversity on small carnivores in the Northern Cape Province, South Africa

    Flea diversity on small carnivores in the Northern Cape Province, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Small carnivores are parasitized by various ectoparasites that include fleas (Siphonaptera). To date few parasite studies in South Africa, and especially the Northern Cape, have focused on fleas, while those that have are biased by small sample sizes. In an...
  4. Exploring the diversity and molecular evolution of shrews (family Soricidae) using mtDNA cytochrome <em>b</em> data

    Exploring the diversity and molecular evolution of shrews (family Soricidae) using mtDNA cytochrome <em>b</em> data

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The taxonomy of the shrews (family Soricidae) is primarily underpinned by the analysis of morphology characters. These morphological characters are, however, often plesiomorphic and difficult to interpret in an evolutionarily meaningful way. Recent molecular studies have provided some clarity at...
  5. Ectoparasites of a non-indigenous warthog population, <em>Phacochoerus africanus</em>, in the Free State Province, South Africa

    Ectoparasites of a non-indigenous warthog population, <em>Phacochoerus africanus</em>, in the Free State Province, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    A population of the common warthog, Phacochoerus africanus, recently became established on several farms in the Free State Province, South Africa. The aim of the study was to record ectoparasite species that occur on this non-indigenous population and to compare...
  6. High population connectivity and Pleistocene range expansion in the direct-developing plough shell <em>Bullia rhodostoma</em> along the South African coast

    High population connectivity and Pleistocene range expansion in the direct-developing plough shell <em>Bullia rhodostoma</em> along the South African coast

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Pleistocene climatic and oceanographic changes have influenced the distribution of marine biodiversity in southern Africa. Most evidence, however, has been derived from rocky shore or demersal taxa; data on sandy shore species are limited, despite severe threats to many sandy...
  7. A microsatellite perspective on the reproductive success of subordinate male honey badgers, <em>Mellivora capensis</em>

    A microsatellite perspective on the reproductive success of subordinate male honey badgers, <em>Mellivora capensis</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The dominance hierarchy system of male honey badg ers, Mellivora capensis, does not appear to determine reproductive success in the species as subordinate males are frequently seen to gain brief access to re ceptive females. To establish whether these interac...
  8. Ectoparasite diversity on rodents at De Hoop Nature Reserve, Western Cape Province

    Ectoparasite diversity on rodents at De Hoop Nature Reserve, Western Cape Province

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Fleas, lice, mites and ticks were collected from 41 Rhabdomys pumilio and seven Otomys irroratus at De Hoop Nature Reserve in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. The aims of the study were firstly to quantify parasite abundance and...
  9. Comparative genetic structure in two high-dispersal prawn species from the south-west Indian Ocean

    Comparative genetic structure in two high-dispersal prawn species from the south-west Indian Ocean

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The penaeid prawns Fenneropenaeus indicus and Metapenaeus monoceros support shallow-water prawn fisheries in the south-west Indian Ocean. They are sympatric and have similar life histories, including developmental stages that depend on estuarine and marine habitats and a short dispersal duration...
